Senator McCarthy shows what the Dodgers had up their butts all night.
A'S 3, DODGERS 0
Facing McCarthy seems like as good a chance as any to keep that winning record, though, as he has missed his last two starts with nagging shoulder pain. (Of course, it could also mean he'll bounce back and throw a one-hitter.)
Well, it ended up being 2 hits over 7 innings, but with how punchless the Dodger offense was tonight, it might was well have been a no-no. (Oh, and they made two errors, too. Whee!) They finally got a look in the 9th, but James Loney promptly snuffed that out with a GIDP.
Dodgers drop back to .500 in Interleague, and are clinging to a 4 1/2 game lead over the Giants, who are currently losing to the Angels. So, there's that.
Oh, and Brandon? your wife's not all that hot.
